1The Lord said to my master, ”Sit by me at my right side, while I put your enemies under your control.” 2The Lord will help your kingdom grow. Your kingdom will start at Zion, and ˻it will grow until˼ you rule your enemies in their own countries! 3Your people will volunteer when you gather your army together. They will wear their special clothes and meet together early in the morning, Those young men will be ˻all around you˼ like dew on the ground. 4The Lord made a promise, and he will not change his mind. “You are a priest forever— the kind of priest Melchizedek was.” 5My Master is at your right side. He will defeat the other kings when he becomes angry. 6God will judge the nations. The ground will be covered with dead bodies. And God will punish the leaders of powerful nations. 7The king will drink from a stream on the way. Then he will lift his head and become strong!
